Author: John Green
So, do I have to fly to Indiana to find out what happened to Hazel? For the kind attention of John Green [hashtag: van houten!]
I actually ‘saw’ early part of the movie adaptation with the same title, but got bored and discontinued watching. I guess it’s not too late to repent then. I have to watch it, attentively this time.
This tragic love story between two hearts a la Romeo & Juliet brought me in a new awareness of seeing life on their perspective. I mean, it’s not hard to show your sympathy with sick friends and then completely forget about them and carry our own lives. People don’t want our pity, they deserve more than that. They want to be treated genuinely not because of their health state. i can’t agree more on the saying that we fight our own battle, let’s be patient with one another.
I might be in the wrong section! 😅 I’m supposed to just have a review, but got lost in the process. That’s how powerful this novel is, or is it just me? It’s for you to find out dear.
Eveyime I reflect on a book i just read, I can’t help but to think the author’s association with persons suffering from big ‘C’. Surely, he must’ve some source of inspiration so to speak. When you started to have a feel for the characters, you knew you are into it.
Moving, inspiring, offer hope not to live longer but to live each day more infinite than the intended infinite for what it’s worth – now I’m paraphrasing a quote on the book itself!
This is not your usual mentor book. It’s an inspirational book. I call it a contemporary equivalent of a Purpose-Driven Life.
Update: funny coincidence.
I am visiting my friend in a hospital today and it happened that the movie flashed in tv screen is, guess what.. The Fault in our Stars 🙂
